  1. Unlikely that it wont be on overrun brakes, usually fitted with electric brakes. I think the machines are imported into uk without trailer chassis then mounted onto uk spec chassis? Thatll probably eat alot of any savings you make getting it converted.
  2. Depends on the work you generally undertaking? Are you regularly making long traverses within a tree or between trees? Mine has been 1 of the best climbing equipment purchases I have made in recent years, although I dont have the kit. I use mine on the end of my climbing line. Id say regardless of the 2 rope debacle itll still be a usefull tool if your type of work warrants it.
  3. Any users have knowledge on a 1991 U1200, with the 366A engine? Capacity? Power? General opinions as a tree machine?
  4. Very good harness. Similar in feel to the Tree Motion, but more padding. Im skinny, and the TM D rings always bit into my hips, not a problem with the MB. Not CE marked for the UK though?
  5. 5 days of big takedowns, 4 weeks a month, 12 months a year? Dont think there is enough trees? Wont make for the longest career either Id say.
  6. No one has mentioned Morbark? Dont know the model numbers.
  7. Probs dont need air brakes, if it has electric brake controller installed, and appropriate brakes on the trailer?
  8. Be weird if Ford put a general motors engine into their trucks no?
  9. Helical hitch is the bomb if you want to stick to old school climbing style.
  10. Bet its a dirty carb. We have 3, all periodically have the same issue.
  11. It'd be no good in the UK, but its a strong truck. 6lt turbo diesel. I regularly tow 5t plus.
  12. Hope confidently felled that with your truck parked there? Thatd be a good stunt fell! We did 6 of them today, 8 yesterday. All around 40inch dbh.
  13. Close call Mick! Few big Cottonwoods the last 2 days.
  14. 2 days worth of work. Stump measured 108 inches at its widest. The last pic came in at 5000lbs.
  15. Portable winch, Captain Hook, SRT!
